With two episodes currently on the streamer and the third set to drop this Friday, Lucasfilm and Disney+'s animated spinoff from "Clone Wars" canon Star Wars: The Bad Batch is keeping the proud tradition of poster key art honors coming out on Mondays (so we're guessing Thursdays for Loki?). Previously, we had a chance to get up-close-and-personal with Hunter, Tech, Crosshair, Echo, Wrecker, and their new 'intern" (for lack of a better phrase) Omega. This time around, freedom fighter Saw Gerrera (Andrew Kishino) gets a whole lot of love- a much better option than being eliminated as an insurgent. Of course, that's the kind of thing that doesn't exactly get them on Admiral Tarkin's (Stephen Stanton) Empire "party guest list"…
Lucasfilm and Disney+ also released mini-profile clips for the members of Clone Force 99- here's a look at the full squad in profile action:

Now here's a look at the new official trailer:
Star Wars: The Bad Batch follows the elite and experimental clones of the Bad Batch (first introduced in The Clone Wars) as they find their way in a rapidly changing galaxy in the immediate aftermath of the Clone War. Members of Bad Batch — a unique squad of clones who vary genetically from their brothers in the Clone Army — each possess a singular exceptional skill, which makes them extraordinarily effective soldiers and a formidable crew. In the post-Clone War era, they will take on daring mercenary missions as they struggle to stay afloat and find new purpose.
For Agnes Chu, senior vice president, Content, Disney+, the upcoming series is just the next chapter in the streamer's commitment to an animated SW universe moving forward. "Giving new and existing fans the final chapter of Star Wars: The Clone Wars has been our honor at Disney+, and we are overjoyed by the global response to this landmark series," explained Chu. "While The Clone Wars may have come to its conclusion, our partnership with the groundbreaking storytellers and artists at Lucasfilm Animation is only beginning. We are thrilled to bring Dave Filoni's vision to life through the next adventures of the Bad Batch."
Dee Bradley Baker voices Clone Force 99 aka "The Bad Batch" (Hunter, Wrecker, Tech, Crosshair, and Echo) and Captain Rex. In addition, the series' voice cast will also include Ming-Na Wen as Fennec Shand, Stephen Stanton as Grand Moff Tarkin, and Andrew Kishino as Saw Gerrera. Dave Filoni (The Mandalorian, SW: The Clone Wars), Athena Portillo (Star Wars: The Clone Wars, Star Wars Rebels), Brad Rau (Star Wars Rebels, Star Wars Resistance), and Jennifer Corbett (Star Wars Resistance, NCIS) executive produce. Carrie Beck (The Mandalorian, SW Rebels) will co-executive produce with Josh Rimes (Star Wars Resistance) producing. Rau is also serving as supervising director, with Corbett as head writer.
